Lisa is brilliant. She plans my son's sessions around his interests, always giving some options to allow him to have autonomy in his learning. I asked him what he thinks of Lisa, and he said he really likes her because she is kind, patient and calm. She has great communication and is always on time, armed with fun resources to engage my hard-to-engage son. We are delighted with the support Lisa has been providing and would absolutely recommend her. Ms Holloway

Holly M
£46.90 to £60.30 ph

Tutor Rayleigh

Every child needs to believe in themselves in order to succeed, and that is fundamental to tutoring success - believing in them and championing them. I have been a teacher for 15 years, working my way towards a head of year 10 progress role. I have also been an senior examiner for AQA GCSE since 2017 and in 2019 I was promoted to a senior examiner role, and in 2022 I was again promoted to a senior reviewer. I have always loved teaching and specifically enjoy tutoring as it enables a much closer relationship with the student to be established. I use scaffolding, encouragement, and stretch and challenge, adapting each session based on the needs of the student. I'm confident in saying that I have always made positive relationships with all of my students, and I firmly believe I would make the same positive relationship with your child, too.

I am a happy, enthusiastic teacher with a love for learning. I have taught all year groups within the Primary phase, across a range of different schools in Essex, with good experience of Key Stage 1 and 2 SATs, the wider curriculum and working with a vast array of Special Educational Needs. I am currently tutoring in my local area after 11 years in the classroom and what I love the most is seeing children progress at their own pace in English and maths. Using the foundations to build and enrich their learning in order to be able to become a critical thinker and independent learner. Seeing how well a child succeeds in their learning makes my job worthwhile. My favourite thing about being a teacher is building a positive learning environment for the children to work in and a trusting relationship in order for them to achieve their absolute best. Just spending time with children who love to learn - there is nothing better! I also believe in encouraging children to achieve their full ability - no glass ceilings!

We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a teacher coming to your home in Rayleigh to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the tutor is required to travel to your home, in Rayleigh. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group tuition in Rayleigh depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
